A rockslide has closed one of Hamilton’s mountain accesses.
McNeilly Road in Stoney Creek is closed, both up and down the escarpment, because of falling rocks and debris.
The City of Hamilton says the access will remain closed until further notice.
Council has increased funding for preventative maintenance in recent years due to stabilization issues on many of Hamilton’s 17 escarpment accesses, which run alongside natural slopes and rock cuts.

Outdoor sports fields remain closed in both Hamilton and Burlington due to the seemingly constant rainfall.
The City of Hamilton says the conditions have left all fields saturated.
The City of Burlington adds that soggy conditions are a threat to player safety and use of the fields would cause damage to the turf, resulting in significant repairs and more lengthy field closures.
